So those of you that are regulars on my website will have noticed that I've posted two other recipes for butter icing on my blog. Each one using a different part of the egg and thus giving each icing its own unique texture and flavour profile. Making it suitable for different occasions and cakes. This whole egg butter icing is my favourite simply because i don't like to waste produce, and you don't always have a need to do something with extra egg whites or yolks! Even though there are several different and easy items you can use both egg whites and yolks for. And as with the other two recipes this one is also very easy to adapt to different flavours you'll like to try out. With the festive season, it is perfect to play around with to make a eggnog flavoured butter cream frosting and pair it with a simple Victoria sponge sandwich cake. Perfect for dessert after a wonderful family dinner.
